According to the Jewish Calendar, we have entered the year 5780. Numbers in the Jewish culture all have meaning and each number corresponds to a Hebrew letter that forms a picture. The prophets have all been telling us that the number 70 relates to the Hebrew letter "ayin," a picture of an eye. And 80 is the Hebrew letter "pey" which is a picture of a mouth opened wide. This year, we have entered into a time where we must open our mouths wide and declare what we have seen. We have moved into a day of proclamation!

Recently I was out shopping and came across a display of decorative mantle books. As I stopped to browse through the selections, one title was highlighted to me. The book was "Great Expectations," a novel by Charles Dickens. When I saw the title, it was as if the Lord smiled and said, "Take note of this, for this is how you are to set your heart for this season."
As I have sought the Lord for His heart on this, He has spoken several things to me about cultivating expectancy in our hearts for this season and all He wants to do. Here are some things I am hearing Him say about cultivating and increasing expectancy:
1. Dream What You Expect
Allow yourself to dream or imagine the thing that you are expecting. When our hearts are healthy and free, we are able to dream and thus allow God to use our imagination to partner with Him to see His will accomplished in our lives.

This month, watch for life-changing divine appointments that will bring people together for a united Kingdom purpose. Your heart may stir with the awareness that it's a pruning season, and relationships may shift as you take inventory on who is destined to walk with you into the next season. Be reminded that God wastes nothing, and that even your mistakes are able to be used to get you where you're headed.
You are going somewhere, and God is leading you to where you need to be at exactly the right time. If you find yourself facing an opportunity that feels bigger than you and impossible to surmount, realize that God may be opening the door for you to trust Him more and take a leap of courage...

Over the past 3-4 months, there has been a sudden wind of opposition rising against many people who are stepping into the new things of God. This wind has tried to stop, hinder, delay, and invoke fear to the point of succumbing to the opposition. We must realize the enemy always has a counterfeit for the things of God. If you notice, it never fails; the counterfeit tends to come right before the 'real' unfolds. Despite the winds of opposition blowing, there's a sudden wind of breakthrough being released to break you through to the next.
There will always be opposition as you cross over the threshold. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 16:9 (TPT), "There's an amazing door of opportunity standing wide open for me to minister here, even though there are many who oppose and stand against me... (more)

"We are social beings: our minds and brains thrive when we are part of a community, while isolation can wreak havoc on our mental and physical health..." -Dr. Caroline Leaf
[Amazing Health Advances] We live in a world where it is easy to think that happiness is something external: a product, a pill or a lifestyle—it is all out there and ready for consumption. Yet, as I discuss on this week's podcast, the happiest people are not those with lots of nice things or lots of likes on social media; these, of course, can help make life more comfortable, but they do not guarantee true happiness...(more)
